Turkey and Jalapeno Quesadillas recipe

servings: 10

total time: 25 minutes

recipe by: 


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 TBSP plus olive oil plus a little extra
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 2 jalapenos, thinly sliced
  • 10 8-inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • sour cream for serving


  1. In a large bowl mix together the turkey, onion, cumin, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper until well combined.

  2. Add 1 TBSP of olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey mixture to the pan and cook, while breaking up the turkey, until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in the corn and jalapenos cook while stirring for about 1 more minute then take the pan off the heat and set aside.

  4. Lay the tortillas out flat onto a flat work surface.

  5. Heat a griddle to 350°F or a large skillet over medium heat on the stove top.

  7. Place the quesadillas on the griddle/pan and cook until browned on one side then flip and brown the other side, about 1 to 2 minutes per side.

  8. Transfer the quesadillas to a cutting board then cut into triangle shapes and serve with sour cream.
